TOM Simpson asks (Write Back, October 14): "We are told that the security services are preventing... plots almost daily – but how do we really know?"
One easy way to find out would be to tell them to stop doing it for, say, a year and see how many atrocities occurred in that time.
I hope Mr Simpson would head the queue of volunteers clearing up the mess.
